Motivate young generation to be success in internet era

Peranan internet, menjelang jatuhnya rezim Soeharto

Posted by jendelaindonesia pada November 23, 2008

Peranan Internet cukup besar pada peristiwa kejatuhan rejim orde baru, dan terjadinya era yang disebut reformasi. pada artikel yang ditulis oleh Waruno Mahdi dan dipresentasikan pada pertemuan tahunan Asian Study yang ke 54th. Pada artikel ini disebutkan sekilas tentang situs Jendela Indonesia, seperti kutipan berikut:
…..
Syafei developed his Jendela Indonesia site running since October 5, 1995, at the Illinois Institute of Technology,Chicago. It hosted a mailing list and news archive which originally catered to university
and student matters. But from 1997 onwards it too became a much frequented portal for non-censored news, including material from Apakabar/Indonesia-L (Tangkar, n.d.)
……
In May 1998, at the time of student occupation of the parliament building and
subsequent resignment of Soeharto, frequency of visits at the Jendela Indonesia portal
caused the server of the Illinois Institute of Technology to crash again and again. The
head of the computer center, Michael Hites, seriously considered closing down Jendela
Indonesia, but realizing that frequency of use was actually demonstrating its usefulness,
and finding that the Indonesian movement for democracy deserved to be supported, he
decided instead to invest $35,000 to step up the server’s efficiency (Tangkar n.d.).
